Clickbait journalism

Recently I heard a radio call-in host debate a caller about media motivation.

The caller thought it was ideology.

The radio host, who has been in the business for a long-time assured him that’s not it.

It’s profit. The stories they carry, the angles they take — for ratings, for profit.

That’s good to keep in mind.
